Join us in Celebrating The UN International day of Nonviolence 2016
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” M.K. Gandhi
The United Nations has established October 2nd each year as the International Day of Nonviolence. It is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of nonviolence as a tool for social change.
October 2nd we commemorate and build on Gandhi’s legacy, as a part of building a “culture of peace” in the world. We come together here to foster principles such as compassion, acceptance, forgiveness and love that will help us to co-create a nonviolent world.
We hope you will join us. Please feel free to post your thoughts or posters on nonviolence in the comment section below as one small way you too can “be the change you wish to see in the world.”
